"For the serious sauvignon blanc geeks out there, this wine is a blend of 85% sauvignon blanc, 11% sauvignon gris and 4% sauvignon musque): Bright straw. Pineapple, melon and tangerine on the intensely fruity nose and in the mouth. Fleshy but focused, offering juicy, smoke-tinged tropical and candied citrus fruit flavors and a subtle touch of anise. Picks up a light vanilla nuance with air, along with elements of ginger and honey. In a round, generous style with very good finishing cling and spicy persistence."~ST

"Nicely dry and tart in acidity, this pretty wine is fine to drink now. Flavors recall citrus fruits with richer notes of papayas, along with gooseberries and green mint from cool-climate grapes. Made without the malolactic fermentation, the wine was coopered in 55% French oak."~SH
About Chalk Hill
On a spring day in 1972, while piloting his plane over the Russian River, Chalk Hill's founder, Fred Furth, caught his first view of a natural amphitheatre carved into the hills of eastern Sonoma. His intuition told him the land had the potential to support a world-class vineyard. A subsequent tour confirmed that the spectacular property indeed had the climate and soils to grow luxury-class wine grapes.

Chalk Hill, Russian River Valley, CA. The Chalk Hill wines are all Estate grown, bottled and produced on the 1277 acre Chalk Hill Estate with 280 acres grown to vine. The incredible diversity of terroir coupled with a site driven philosophy and meticulous attention to detail allow Chalk Hill to create world-class wines of power and elegance. The vineyard has several clones of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet on the Estate along with a variety of soil types all within the single estate which makes it a place where both Burgundian and Bordeaux varietals can be grown.
